Unity Thursday- Time to Hop!

October
Time for apples and apple cider
Changing leaves
Jacket weather
and all things Pumpkin flavoured!

The other thing October means to me is Christmas cards
If I don't get crackin' on them now....
Well it will be another year of empty mailboxes
And sad sighs from my loved ones
Yikes!

So I am so glad that some of today's releases are Christmas themed
I was able to whip up these cards in no time
Gotta love fast and easy to duplicate cards!



I fully recommend these stamps for your collection!
And of course we have some sales for you too!



And don't forget while you are hopping along....

We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.


That's it for me today, I've got some Unity shopping to do

Happy Crafting,

Really cute cards!! I'm glad there are some Christmas ones in this new set, too!! Love the sweater card, even though I personally don't think that kind of sweater is ugly. It's just seasonal. :)

Today I have some Halloween cards I made using the, "Halloween Bookmarks" Printables file. You get 2 of each bookmark, 4 on a page.






I printed the file onto cream colored cardstock, cut them out and used them as a pattern to cut out chipboard (I used an empty cereal box for chipboard) to add some rigidness to them. I used both copies of the bookmarks putting the chipboard in between them.







I added an eyelet at the top and added a piece of twine to the eyelet. I frayed a piece of burlap and added it to my card base, the cards measure 4 1/2" wide x 7" tall when folded. The burlap measures 3" wide x 7" tall. I adhered the burlap to the card face with double sided tape and the bookmark to the burlap with foam pads.







I also added twine and a button to the folded side and jewels to the opening side. They were fun and easy to make and I'm sure that my snail mail pals are going to love them.

Sorry about that, I did a paste and forgot I had copied something else before. I tried to delete it but I have been unable to.

Anyhow, I love your Ugly Sweater.
